The AKCP ropeFuel sensor provides distributed leak detection for a wide range of applications such as monitoring for fuel leaks beneath or around backup generator fuel tanks, fuel storage areas, or fuel transfer stations.
The sensor can be used ONLY ONCE. Etc. In case of contact with oil the sensor can NOT be cleaned. He needs to be replaced.
The ropeFuel sensor detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length. Installed with the AKCP sensor module, the sensor detects the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of a leak within a meter, or a foot.
This sensor comes fully assembled including the fuel sensing rope, the non-sensing cable that connects the rope to the sensing module and the main sensing module that connects via CAT5e LAN cable to the sensorProbe\securityProbe 5E.
The sensor can be used to trigger alerts like email, SMS, Skype, phone calls and SNMP traps. The sensor has its own SNMP OID, so that it can be monitored over your network using any Network Management System.
Radiation cross-linking and conductive-polymer technologies provide chemical resistance and tensile strength in the sensing rope. Its core consists of an alarm signal wire and a continuity wire encased in a conductive-polymer jacket in a fluoropolymer braid.
This rugged construction ensures dependable reliably in the harshest of environments under the most demanding conditions.
AKCP ropeFuel Sensor
As this sensor is a rope type it is perfect for lying beneath fuel tanks, usually found being used with diesel generators in remote locations where early warning of fuel leakage or theft is vital to maintaining the power supply, either of a UPS or as the main power source.
